Replaced Lamp and warning is still on screen

We have replaced the lamp 2 years ago and it worked great. This time we replaced it and the warning still shows on the screen. I checked the lamp hours and it says 2484 hrs. so I put the old lamp back in and it still said 2484 hrs. I cannot see any reset for the hours. (I was told the hour log was built into the lamp) Please advise Greg C.

Indicator showing LAMP. Does this indicate the lamp needs replacing?


Yes. The lamp is timed and the replacement indicator signals when the lamp is near end of life. If the lamp fails catastrophically it makes a mess... best to replace before that happens.

Projector shuts off within 30 seconds of power on


is the led lit on the top of the projector? what colors?

green is ok.

red flashing in sequence:
2 times- lamp hours exceed 200 hrs. replace lamp.
3 times- lamp failure. replace lamp.
4 times- fans not working. remove obstruction or replace fan.
5 times- temp too high. clean thoroughly.
solid red- undiagnosed error by projector. possible power supply or ballast.

also make sure the lamp door switch is working.

Mitsubishi HC900 Projector shuts down after 5 minutes.


You have 1 of 2 possible problems.

(1) You need a new lamp.

(2) You have an overheating problem.

Just a quick couple of notes about your projector. It is a DLP projector (not LCD) and as such the machine as no air filters to clean. It does have air intake and air exhaust grilles, but no air filters to clean. This next part comes directly from the owner' manual for your projector:

When the lamp operation time exceeds 2000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and can’t be used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.

Your machine is designed to give visual warning messages at 1500 hours used, and 1900 hours used. Did you see any visual warning about lamp life over the past few months?

If you were experiencing an overheating problem, a "TEMPERATURE!!" message would flash up on the screen just before the unit shuts down. If there is no warning, you don't have a heat problem.

If you have a replacement lamp available, install it and reset the lmap hours according to your user manual. If you don't have the manual, google it on the web (it available).

Projector Lamp


Hi there

Does your Projector go in for regular services ?

Have a technician check out the fans of this unit as well.

I would suggest you hook up a UPS to this Projector , because eventhough you might not have power dips or failures - the power supplied to appliances is not spike free and Projectors struggle to handle this well.

Lamp goes out after about 20 minutes of operation, does come back on after pressing the power button again, but not for long.


how old is the lamp? If old then at end of life and projector shuts down automatically to avoid damage. If new bulb reset lamp in OSD menu

Sounds like the fuse popped. t5a=5 amps 250v=250 volts So you will need a fast-acting 5 amp 250 volt fuse
